to say for the country, only nasty words to spew about the people running it or hoping to. john mccain, who served the country so admirably, has become an angry fellow from dawn until dusk taking an occasional break to remember who he is and saying enough of this when his new allies get out of hand. when ted cruz starts attacking the loyalty to america of one of mccain's fellow vietnam vets, a combat vet at that. the viciousness is something we haven't seen before because of the combination of mccarthyism and this weird unconnectedness, attacking chuck hagel, for example, because no one will give us info or anyone info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard
point for some years on this issue. it's what john mccain, presidential campaign had to recognize when he was running that you got to get border security up there first and everything else you want to do comes after that. the president's -- the ideas embodied in this leaked bill has border security measures in it but it doesn't put it up front and make that the premise after which everything else flows. that is the sticking point. >> bill: why doesn't the president if he wants to get it done, just say we're going to negotiate with the republicans, we'll put in some tough measures on the border and then everything will follow after it? this doesn't seem like that, you know? >> he may say those words but the president and his party are much less concerned about border security than the republicans are. >> bill: does the president say.... >> no. these aren't things people. >> bill: it's more b.s.? >> of course it is. but it will be produced without the president's negotiations. it will be a congressional affair and the president is very likely to sign whatever he gets, whether it's tough
unidos. en washington, lori montenegro telemundo. >> el senador republicano john mccain desatÓ una fuerte controversia en el estado de arizona al defender una "reforma migratoria" integral que lell za a millones de indocumentados. mccain es defensor de la seguridad fronteriza pero fue vÍctima de ataque un encuentro de soÑadores y miembros del estado. >> en medio del fuego cruzado el senador john mccain encabezÓ un foro comunitario en el cual el tema de la inmigraciÓn llamo la atenciÓn, reitero de por quÉ es tracendent tracendental. >> son aproximadamente 11 millones de personas indocumentadas los que residen en los estados unidos y una "reforma migratoria" es extremo deamente necesaria por diferentes razones una de ellas por cuestioness de seguridad nacional. en el foro varios mostraron el desacuerdo pero manifestaron la inseguridad en la frontera. >> una "reforma migratoria" nif mÁs seguridad en la frontera para no repetir la consecuencia de la ato mmnistÍa del 86. >> es una de las prioridades dice el senador mccain para la implementaciÓn precisamente tema de la frontera fue uno
any more. john mccain and lindsey graham because every damn sunday, you turn on the sunday shows. who has their ugly mugs on t.v.? john mccain and lindsey graham on every one of the freakin shows. sometimes more than one. but if they are not on fox, they are on abc. if they are not on ab. c, they are on the "meet the press." if they are not on "meet the press" they are on quite state of the union." they are always dumping on everything obama is doing over and over and over. there are 100 senators. right? alt every sunday do we have to here that idiot lindsey graham from south carolina who has become the biggest scourge of the republican party, the u.s. senate and john mccain who ish something maybe to say 20 years ago but he doesn't have today. it's the same ol' gabble. there they were again yesterday, trotting them out, lindsey graham was on face the nation, and john mccain on fox news sunday. so lindsey graham still doesn't know enough about benghazi and he is not going to let chuck hagel go forward unless we find out some more. >> i don't think
more lit reconciliation can i use? listen to how david gregory pressed john mccain over the weekend where he stands and where he feels about chuck hagel. take a listen. >> it is payback time for chuck hagg hagel, that's what this amounted to. >> of course not. we will have a vote when we get back and i am confident senator hagel will probably have the votes necessary. >> you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no. i don't believe he is qualified. i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any further. >> i don't believe he is qualified. susan, when did john mccain lose complete and utter faith in his old buddy, the person that he would have nominated for defense secretary if john mccain had won back in 2000? >> one argues it happened while he was running for election and didn't get the support and when hagel supported barack obama for president. that aside, the bigger problem is what happened in the senate. we now have left this nominee who will get confirmed weaker for t they should have allowed the president's choice to go through plain and simple unless they foun
, then people don't forget that. >> that was republican senator john mccain on fox news yesterday explaining why exactly he is participating in filibustering chuck hagel's nomination to be secretary of defense. he says chuck hagel is too darn disagreeable. so says john mccain. quote, in a heated dispute over immigration law overhaul, mccain screamed f you at john cornyn who had been raising concerns about the legislation. this is chicken -- stuff, mccain snapped at cornyn. are you calling me stupid chuck grassley once said? no, replied senator mccain. i'm calling you an -- jerk. at a gop meeting last fall, mccain erupted out of the blue at the respected budget chairman pete domenici, quote, only an -- would put together a budget like this. a speech about all his years in the senate through all the heated debates no one had ever called him that. another man might have taken a moment to check his temper, but mccain went on, i wouldn't call you that unless you really were that. >> you can disagree, but if you're disagreeable, then people don't forget that. >> ah, the arbiter of disagreeable. it is
in arizona, which the republican senator there, john mccain, has been holding in his home state. the woman who stopped the tucson, arizona shooter was there in the room when this happened today at john mccain's town hall. >> my 24-year-old son alex was murdered in a movie theater in aurora, colorado. these assault weapons allow a shooter to fire many rounds without having to reload. these weapons do not belong on our streets. >> i can tell you right now you need some straight talk. that assault weapons ban will not pass the congress of the united states. [ applause ] >> i said that was today. that was actually yesterday. john mccain's arizona constituents, you can hear them at the end there applausing boisterously at his ability to bestow some patented john mccain straight talk on that woman, who obviously needs it, that woman whose son was killed less than a year ago in the aurora, colorado mass shooting. that's the footage that was aired by channel 3 in phoenix. obviously, there was an edit between the end of the woman's question and the part where john mccain sneers the straight talk li
to advance president obama's nominee to head the cia, john brennan. senator john mccain is proposing holding up the nomination of john brennan because, well, john mccain. but even in the midst of that conflict, there is an interesting confluence of opinion right now that something major should be changed in mr. brennan's field of expertise. mr. brennan broached the subject in a "washington post" profile that ran about him last october. the acting director of the cia from whom mr. brennan would take over if he is confirmed, that acting director raised the issue in an article "the new york times" published about the cia in december. and now the man, the republican senator who is threatening to hold up the brennan nomination so the acting director has to stay on, this republican senator, he too says that he agrees that something big needs to be changed. >> what we really need to do is take this whole program out of the hands of the central intelligence agency and put it into the department of defense where you have adequate oversight, you have committee oversights, you have all the things that
. instead is he going to be secretary of defense. >> by that measure, john mccain should have been president in 2008 up against a guy who had no experience in executive branch and experience in the military. >> -- and no experience in the military. >> i have the highest regard for john mccain. is he a friend of mine. i actually went and visited where he was held in captivity with com sam johnson. he is an amazing man and i like him a lot. this is whether hagel is going to be secretary of defense. based on who he is and his service to the country. i never voted against israel in his 12 years in the senate. i think he is somebody who wants peace, he he is strong. he will keep us out of wars. i think that we need somebody in that position. >> here is what bill kristol wroited today, chuck hagel isn't a first rate candidate for secretary of defense. he isn't even a second rate candidate. has there ever been a more embarrassing confirmation hearing than hagel for a measure cabinet position. for a minor cabinet position or subcabinet position. we don't know of one. congressman, i understand the wh
's the bottom line, and the message was delivered by mr. straight talk, john mccain, yesterday. ultimately, hagel's issues with his former gop colleagues are simply personal. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel, because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush, mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover. said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> there you go. a delay is never a good thing, because it does give hagel's opponents additional time to try to torpedo his nomination. the fact that hagel essentially got 59 votes, including four from republicans, suggest that he's likely to be confirmed when this vote comes up again on february 26th. the fact is hagel's going to be a weakened secretary of defense in all of this. is that damage temporary or permanent? yesterday also highlighted a growing problem with the gop, that they are dealing, and one many republicans outside of d.c. fret about. it's clear what the gop
to know that his problems were going to come from john mccain, ted cruz, lindsey graham, and a couple of the other republican conservatives. it just seemed to go completely off track. not the confirmation, but the performance. >> well, here's what happened. he was bad. i mean, there's no other kind of way to put it. these things -- these public kwurmation hearings are at least part performance, andrea, and i would argue they're mostly performance, and you are right. he just seemed sort of ill equipped to manage it. only thing i could think of was this. strategically speaking. chuck hagel and his people decided going into this that, yes, he had a few issues, but they had already sort of been publicly litigated and had proven to be not disqualifying. that is, he had got tony this point. therefore, he should just take sort of a passive stance, let ted cruz, let john mccain, let them lecture him sort of be apologetic and say i did the best i that i could, but not go on the attack, not be aggressive, be under the theory that if nothing else came out that ultimately the republican senators
in washington, d.c. that can do sunday shows? john mccain would be good. >> yeah, he's 234not going to v for him. at the earliest, it won't happen until lawmakers return to washington next week after a ten-day recess. senator john mccain, one of hagel's most outspoken critics, pushed back against suggestions that his opposition was meant to settle old scores. >> is it payback time for chuck hagel? that's what this process has amounted to? >> of course not. 99% of it is to do with the positions that senator hagel has taken. the positions he's taken on various issues has frankly been not only out of the mainstream but far to the left. we will have a vote when we get back, and i'm confident that senator hagel will probably have the votes necessary to be confirmed as the secretary of defense. we have an obligation of advice and consent. i don't intend to give those up when other senators continue to have reasonable questions. i mean reasonable. >> but you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no, i don't believe he's qualified, but i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any furthe
presiding over a war in afghanistan. >> and is john mccain now conceding this is all a grudge match? >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder sense the vietnam war, which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> the heroes of newtown. president obama pos thumously awards the medal to six people who died while rescuing the children. >> dawn hotsprung and mary serlach, vicky solo, lauren russo, rachel devino, ann marie murphy. they gave their lives to protect the precious children in their care. they gave all they had for the most innocent and helpless among us. that's who we honor today. the courageous heart, the selfless spirit, the inspiring actions of extraordinary americans. >> the triumph was no triumph. the carnival cruise ship finally reaches shore, and -- >> we didn't have water. we didn't have showers. we didn't have hot meals. >> it was lit
